2014 Cabernet Franc


On the nose, the wine jumps out of the glass with notes of rosemary, cherry, violets, and sweet plum, with background notes of toasted walnut, pepper, coriander seed, and lavender. The palate is filled with flavor, from ripe, black cherry, and sweet red fruit, to dense cocoa and chestnut cream. The mid-palate is heavy with fruit, finishing with fine grained tannins. Age up to 10 years. Winery Exclusive

Harvest & Winemaking

Harvest 2014 started with the scare of drought. Luckily, some perfectly timed spring rain helped develop nice vineyard canopies. Likely due to the dry winter, we had an early bloom and an even earlier ripening than 2013. Not only that, we had one of the largest earthquakes in decades rock the valley on the eve of harvest. Undeterred, but with many vintners picking up the pieces of broken barrels and spilled wine, harvest 2014 charged on with perfect, mild weather through the end of the growing season. This led to high quality grapes and even higher quality wine we can’t wait to share.
